first thing to do is to open MSCONFIG and stop any running startup programs you dont use.

bluring games would lead one to think that you are stressing you video card, or need glasses after too much play..

try another video card if you can borrow one.

those 6 gogs of memory, are they 3x 2gb, it may be that you should run 4 or 8 so that the memory slots are working as intended, use slots of the same colour.

check for over heating, speedfan, cputemp, etc etc will monitor your temps and let you know if you have a over heating issue.

finally if the issue continues, take it back and get a replacement from wherever you bought it..it should still be under warranty, dont take no for answer, some issues are very difficult to find and this may be one of them...
you didnt pay all that money for lemon.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

Also, try updating you video card driver within windows 7, you probably have the right one for XP, but you might not have the correct one for Windows 7, certainly probably not the latest one (or let them do it where you purchased it). If you go back to where you purchased it, back up your personal files so you are protected from any of their 'drastic fixes'.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
